Can you buy Lactose Free Milk in Amsterdam?

Hi,

We are off to Amsterdam in July and I get a bit of an upset tummy with milk.

Can you buy Lactose Free Milk?

Can you buy it in cafe's as well as the supermarket?

What is it called?

How easy is to get?

What is the best brand?

Thanks for your help,

Blafroni

I would guess that shops like Marqt and Ekoplaza sell it.

Albert Heijn supermarket (found all over the place) sell Alpro soy milk and rice milk and almond milk and whatnot.

Been there done that.

Beeing lactose intolerant myself. You have Albert Hein in every main street/area and back in 2011 i got alpro soy milk and yogurts there.

Going back later this year and i'm counting on that again!

Amsterdam is a very upbeat updated and hippie chick city, and even if it's hard for you to find lactose free milk in cafes and restaurants, i'm sure you'll do great on the meals.

Ps. They serve soy milk drinks at starbucks (worth the splurge) and as for A Hein supermarkets, just look for the blue sign!!! Even at the airport!! ;)

It's called "lactosevrij melk" and is readily available (fresh) in any supermarket. You'll struggle to find it in normal cafes and restaurants though.
